Work from anywhere is catching on, and the trend shows no signs of stopping. More and more companies are transitioning to a remote-first culture that supports working from anywhere across the globe. As we’ve seen at Remote, creating a flexible workplace that welcomes and empowers employees to work from where they work best is especially critical for businesses building global teams. 

Employees want the option to move, whether to a new region or a whole new country, yet they want to stay with their organizations — and that is where Remote comes in. With the Remote Relocation program, Remote can provide end-to-end support during the relocation process. As of today, Remote supports relocation assistance to 20 countries, and we’re adding more each month! 

What relocation assistance means for your business

Relocation doesn’t just benefit your employees — it helps you, too!

Remote helps with visas, immigration, taxes, and even logistics of moving internationally

  • Find and keep top-performing talent

Hiring and retaining the right talent is always a challenge. After all, no one wants to miss out on the perfect candidate! A relocation package is a great way to stay competitive in the market to attract (and retain) top talent for your organization. 

Research conducted by Remote found that 20% of workers said that if they were able to work anywhere in the world without affecting their salary and benefits, they would be more likely to stay 10 years longer with their current company than they would otherwise. Another 45% said they would stay between 1-10 years longer.

  • Increased employee engagement 

Giving employees the flexibility to choose where they want to work is a great way to show that you care about your employees. Engaged workers feel committed to the organization and are naturally more productive. When your employees know their employment with you does not limit their travel options, they are more likely to envision a future that has your company in it.

  • Expand into new markets

Another great advantage when you remove location as a barrier is the opportunity to scale your operations quickly into new markets. Remote handles the complexity of relocating and employing people in countries around the world. We have HR, legal, and tax experts on the ground on every continent to protect you and your employees against ever-changing regulations. We take care of everything so you can focus on expanding your business!
